"C'est une petite lampe de bureau en forme de phare breton. "
"C'est très joli ! "
I am reading
"C'est" vs "Il/Elle est" to say it is/she is/he is in French
Based on that, I am thinking this: we have a specific item here, not a general subject like "La science",
so we can't use 2a - c'est for general, unspecific statements and opinions
so why isn't it using : 2b "il est/elle est for statements and opinions related to specific things"
= Elle est très jolie.
Dictation exercise A1
As this is a dictation exercise, you are only supposed to write down what you hear.
Although you are right to query what we have written, it is true that both 'c'est joli' ( commentaire général) and 'elle est jolie' ( cette lampe en particulier) would be acceptable in a free-form exercise, this is not the case here.
Hope this helps!
